So unless someone would definitely dissuade me from doing so, I would like to ask you for recommendations for a laptop + X + hd600 , X<$1100 setup. Sorry for my way through the forums here, I'm in the process of making up my mind... This is the continuation of http://www4.head-fi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=74184. Since i still have hardly any real clue despite reading faqs and lots of posts, I simply need some "go out don't think and buy xy" advice... The basis should be the laptop's usb, if there is reason, the pcmcia can also be used. Thank you for your feedback.
i'd recommend a sonica and a ppa. never heard the ppa myself but i am a pretty big fan of the meta and what it used to do for it's price point, so i have faith in the ppa. and i have a sonica theatre that always impresses me.
